NEW BRITAIN - Belvedere Restaurant is all dressed up for the holiday season and hosting Christmas parties all the time these days.
Owner Ela Konferowicz goes all out in decorating her Broad Street mainstay. Not only inside the dining rooms and bar area, but also outside in the patio area and entrances. Belvedere is well known for being a gem of New Britain’s Little Poland neighborhood and is a popular destination for formal gatherings year-round.
Santa and his helper came by Sunday to attend a gingerbread house decorating party for children, hosted inside the restaurant’s dining room.
“They brought lots of presents,” Konferowicz told the Herald. “The kids had lots of fun.”
These were children of regular Belvedere customers and others from the New Britain community.
“The party was organized by Belvedere and sponsored by CDI Distributors,” Konferowicz added.
She and her staff are already in the midst of a busy holiday season. Belvedere Restaurant is a popular venue for local companies to book Christmas parties and many private events through New Year’s Day.
“We also do catering for parties and people’s houses,” Konferowicz said.
Orders of Christmas cakes, appetizers, entrees, desserts and other Belvedere specialties must be placed by Dec. 20 to be ready by Christmas. Call 860-826-1155 to book a party or inquire about catering service.
